CREATE: Wall aRt

I was browsing through my photos and saw these wall arts i made 3 years ago...just thought of sharing these to you. I used to work in a Center-based (non- government organization). I really miss working there. Love the place; love the people and the children too. Volunteers usually come to help out and mingle with the kids for a month or two. That year before i finished my contract there, i got the chance to meet 3 beautiful European volunteers from Denmark. We had such a great time with them. They stayed like 6 months with us.

But their stay was up and it was time for them to leave. We usually celebrate farewell party to encourage and give thanks to our volunteers. I was asked to make something that would encourage them. It was just a simple way of appreciating their heart and effort in serving the children. I created these wall art using chipboard as the base card and wrapped it with abaca and put embellishments on it like fancy flowers and leaves, coconut buttons, beads, shells, marble, white sand, paper twine to hang them and wrote inspiring quotes using watercolor that encouraged them so much.

I think it's a great idea to make one dear friend smile this week. Why don’t you make one? Hmmm...which reminds me of my friend who will be celebrating her birthday soon..

Have a creative week everyone!=)
